I have taught inclusion classes in language arts and math in the 7th grade. I have also taught self-contained 7th grade math. Currently, I teach a self-contained class of students in grades K-4, including reading, math, social studies, science, living skills, fine motor skills, and social skills.
Because I teach students with significant special needs, I tend to use direct instruction with many visual aids. Pictures are very important in my classroom.
